The Gelato Spot in Old Town Changing Name, Adding Full-Service Dining Area
That question was surely on the minds of the owners of this Old Town Scottsdale creamery (with three other locations in the Valley) when they installed a wood-fired pizza oven on the premises last fall. At that time, with no exterior signage, letting customers know about the selection of thin-crust Neapolitan-style pies was strictly word-of-mouth. But now, word seems to be getting out and changes are underway.
First off, the name.
A friendly store manager at the location told me that signage for The Gelato Spot's new name, The G-Spot, with the subhead, gelato and wood-fired pizza, would be going up in the next few weeks. In addition, the location is adding an upstairs, full-service dining area complete with a bar. The new space should be ready by late summer or fall.
The exterior (now with a banner promoting the pizza) will be updated in the next few weeks.
Are there plans to turn other locations into pizza and gelato serving G-Spots? I'm told the owners are thinking about making the Biltmore location on Camelback Road into a G-Spot as well.
Stay tuned for details.
